Frequently Asked Questions2023-06-11T23:31:04+00:00

We have partial and full scholarships available upon request based on family need and/or financial hardships. You will be able to apply for a scholarship during the registration process.

In order to apply for a scholarship, please complete the scholarship questions on the application AND email us a copy of your most recent federal tax return (the first 2 pages) or your most recent award letter to verify your family income. Our email address is [email protected]. Scholarship requests will NOT be reviewed if we have not received your financial documentation.


Swimming activities are conducted at the ranch ponds, or at the ranch custom swimming pool. Campers are supervised by camp counselors trained in CPR and First Aid during swimming activities. There is no certified lifeguard on duty at the camp. Any camper roughhousing and/or demonstrating a disregard for safety, whether swimming in ponds or pool, the camper could lose his/her swimming privileges for the rest of the day or revoked for the remainder of the camp.

There is a wide gravel driveway with a ranch gate that says “Red Bank Ale & Quail” on your left.

The cell reception is spotty on the drive out to the ranch so please map your directions before you leave home.


Campers are very active during their stay at camp and writing letters or sending postcards is difficult. Don’t expect to receive any correspondence from your child. They are having a great time. We discourage mail being sent to campers during their short stay with us because we will not likely receive that mail until after the camper has left for home.
Landline number: (530)529-9627 or (530)529-9435

Camp Food2021-04-16T09:34:33+00:00

Please do not supply your child with food, chewing gum, candy, etc. for their stay at camp. We provide ample, balanced meals, a light snack, and canteen sessions (see Camp Canteen). If campers have food in their cabin, they tend to eat it right before a meal, and uneaten food attracts ants and mice. It can also create hard feelings among the other campers and is a headache for the counselors.

Please let us know if your camper has a food allergy or restricted diet.

What to Leave At Home2023-04-15T18:31:38+00:00
  • Knives
  • Candy/Food
  • Any lighting device with a flame
  • Flashlights
  • Fireworks
  • Ammunition
  • IPods and MP3 Players
  • Handheld Games
  • Cell Phones and Smart Watches

Please leave all electronic devices behind. If a camper is found to have an electronic device during their stay, it will be confiscated.  We want the kids to interact with each other while at camp and we will not make exceptions to this rule. There is no cell phone service at camp so we will have a landline available in case of emergencies. If you need to reach your child you will be able to call the landline, and if we need to reach you for some reason regarding your child we will call from that landline as well. But we do advise parents not to call unless there is something important. Frequent calls actually make it harder for any child who is homesick. And one thing to remember is if you don’t hear from your child, that means they are having a great time at camp!

Campers are encouraged to bring an inexpensive disposable camera to take pictures during camp. Please write the campers name on the cameras. Pictures throughout camp will be taken and posted to the RBOA social media account, (i.e., Instagram, Facebook), That will give camp parents the ability to access and view photos of their child at camp.
